This article explains an image of an accidental cannulation of ascending lumbar vein. Along line was inserted at the medial aspect of the left knee of a 27 week gestation neonate. The line used was Vygon premicath, 27 gauge, inserted up to 10 cm. A test radiograph with contrast showed the dye flowing upwards at the left side of the vertebrae in the anatomical position of the left ascending lumbar vein. This highlights the value of using contrast to check the long line position.

    We evaluated 13 reconstructions of the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) of the knee associated with a reconstruction of the ACL (n=6) and PCL (n=7). In all cases the LCL was reconstructed using a semitendinosus tendon graft through a tunnel in the fibular head and fixed in anatomical insertion...
